2023 YP Mentorship YP Application

For those looking to pursue professional development:

This structured program is designed to empower young professionals (age 18-35) with the skills they need to reach their personal and professional goals. We will strategically pair YP’s with an appropriate mentor. YPs will be expected to participate in monthly workshops, a community project, and create individual development plans.

The YP will be responsible for completing their own individual developmental plan with guidance from their mentor. They will attend the following monthly workshops:
Introductory Event- March 21
Leadership Session- April 18
Toastmasters Meeting- May 18
Day of Action Group Project- June 20 (TBD)
HYPE Awards Tabling Event- July 13
Networking Session- August 18
Wrap Up Event- August 29

This is a 6-month program. The program runs in the months of March-August

YPs must be able to communicate with their Mentor at least twice a month during the program to help define goals and progress in reaching these goals. Mentors will be responsible for guiding their YP by offering encouragement, networking opportunities, and motivation to help contribute to their YP's professional development.

Cost for the program is $125. Payment can be made by credit card by calling 607-772-8640 or by check made payable to the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce with a memo of YP Mentorship Program. Payment is due Tuesday March 21st.
